The No Dogs Left Behind team in China this week spayed, neutered, micro chipped, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for heart worm, photographed and logged into the system close to 100 dogs. The entire female dog population at the Henan shelter were spayed. The team is providing all of the after care for the dogs at the newly built Henan shelter location. 14 of the sterilized dogs have also been kept in quarantine at the recovery center for severe skin issues. In addition we welcomed the villagers to bring dogs for free to be sterilized.
Additionally I rescued a large golden retriever mix on an emergency call out. The dog was in a horrifically abusive situation and was caged and chained for 2 years fighting for food with other dogs in the cage. He is now safely settling in to the shelter, he has been neutered, vaccinated, chipped dewormed and is recovering. We named him Lion and he is receiving lots of TLC so he can learn to trust humans again. A DOG LIKE THIS HAS NO CHANCE OF LIFE IN CHINA AND would be clubbed to DEATH ON THE STREET. Lion will undergo an intensive rehabilitation program here at the shelter and will be in a home safe in a bed and be well loved!
We also rescued a border Collie Buddy that is so sweet but surrendered to be sold for meat as he has a skin problem A SKIN PROBLEM! The neglect from lack of treatment is endless. Simple preventive treatment of deworming and monthly maintenance would ensure that would never happen. We started the treatment with an effective skin treatment protocol, vaccinated, micro chipped and entered into our data base. Buddy would have been tossed into a pen with dangerous dogs that would probably killed him immediately.
We rescued a black sweet as pie Labrador called Toby suffering from severe trauma to the spine!! Most likely beaten by the villager with a bamboo stick as he's a big dog, or run over by a car as dogs run free in China. We will be evacuating these dogs to our Beijing headquarters for further treatment.
We also rescued a German Shepherd named Rexy last week. Rexy was and is still so weak and emaciated that she couldn’t walk. We have treated her for internal parasites, dehydration, starvation and a completely depleted immune system. A local volunteer offered to take Rexy to the hospital for a CBC and Chemical test in order to see what going on with her organs. Turns out Rexy has a severe infection, her kidney is hardly functioning and she has severe anemia. Her treatment is 24/7 she stays with me and sleeps by my side. We've asked Volunteers to check their local stores for omega 3-6-9, potassium, vitamin D and flaxseed. We are now cooking a specific low protein diet and treating the anemia.
Additionally the team assisted Chinese activists in closing down a slaughter house in Zhengzhou City in Henan Province. All the dogs and puppies rescued are at the No Dogs Left Behind shelter receiving medical care and lots of love.
